Dear Mid-Michigan Jazz Lovers,
We hope this post finds you and your family well. In these times of social distancing and venue closings, a live public space gathering of jazz musicians and their jazz-loving fans is impossible. Because JAMM’s mission is “to preserve and promote the tradition of Live Jazz across Mid-Michigan”, the Board of Directors of the Jazz Alliance of Mid-Michigan has decided to distribute $200 individual grants to Professional Mid-Michigan Jazz Musicians who are struggling financially because of cancelled gigs. These grants do not have to be repaid and any Professional Mid-Michigan Jazz Musician may apply.
To find out more about getting a grant, contact JAMM President at firstname.lastname@example.org or by text at 517-242-1126 to access the confidential grant application process.
I spoke with Kevin Lavery from WKAR about the grant, you can listen to the interview here.
Peace, Love and Long Live Live Jazz,
Lois Mummaw, JAMM President
